D-Guard Bowie KnifeD-Guard Bowie Knife
Popular in the Confederacy during the Civil War for its all-purpose capabilities, the D-Guard bowie chopped branches, split logs, sliced saplings and even had its way with a Yankee or two. Re-enactors use it to dig cannon emplacements! The steel guard can withstand punishment and the massive, high carbon steel blade holds an edge well. A soldier on the move soon learns to travel light, so a handmade bowie was often treasured as a backup weapon when the entire cavalry were "under the guns." Grip is contoured wood with light stain. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts®. Includes leather sheath with metal furniture.  Cannot use Paypal as payment option.

WOW, This knife was so much more than I expected for the price! It's heavy, well made and my husband loved his initials on it. I've never seen him so happy over a gift before! He does reenactments, and said everyone liked the knife. THANK YOU from Florida

Aside from being unsightly, a bad guard-to-blade joint is a sign of poor crftsmanship. Fixing the wide gaps in the guard-to-blade joint, and having the joint silver-soldered would improve the knife considerably and should be considered by Windlass in future manufacturing quality improvement. The bad guard to blade fit allows moisture and crud to enter into the handle and potentially cause rust at the critical joint. A soldered guard would make the joint stronger.
